Is it just me or does Virtualbox seem to perform better than VMWare
Workstation under Ubuntu?
I've been virtualising Desktop OSes for 5-6 years using VMWare and
historically been successful. The last 18 months or so with various
versions of Ubuntu and VMWare on my host I've found the performance of
my host and guests to be massively slow - both freezing with loads of
disk activity but no obvious processes hogging my cycles.
This week I bit the bullet, installed Virtualbox and created a new Win7
guest - latest patches, Office 2016 and Adobe Photoshop 2017.
It whizzes along quite happily and doesn't effect the host at all.
I'm considering migrating fully but the thought of having Oracle
software on my PC grates somewhat...
